Ceramic Art London 2010

Last Friday I visited Ceramic Art London 2010. This is the first time I have been to this annual exhibition, as travelling from Norway to London doesn’t exactly come cheap. The whole experience was quite overwhelming. I have never seen so much ceramics in one place at once, and I loved it! Obviously not everything was my preferred ceramic cup of tea, but I still enjoyed the wide spectre of craft. I also attended two demonstrations and a talk where three artists would talk about their work.

Elke Sada demonstrated her way of building with casted clay, painted using slip coloured with body stains as paint. She explained how the technique gave her freedom to express herself, and her work is truly expressive.

The second talk was by Natasha Daintry. Her focus was mainly the colour in her work, and how she achieves her palette.

The last speaker was Robert Cooper. He demonstrated his way of working with layers, patterns and transfers, and talking about his inspiration and firing cycles.
